A must see on a clear day! There's also the equivalent of the "Trick Eye Museum" inside the lower part of the tower. Lots of fun in there too!

It was nice to take a short time to climb up. Considering it being weekend, it was not that bad. Waited for some time to get the ride to the top then it was too cloudy to see anything! Still, great place for Seoul.

Great view of Seoul from the top and not as expensive as some other observatories in Asia. The staff is very friendly and trying to help wherever they can. Definitely worth a visit!

You can reach Namsan Seoul Tower through the Cable car or if you love nature you can hike! But I suggest to take the cable car for 8500 won for round trip. You can also find the Love and Locks at N Seoul tower where you can put your name and your lover on a padlock and seal your love.... More

Perfect place to go if the visibility is good. Don't miss the ice cream place, the restaurant and take tons of pictures. No need to go up in the tower. The view from the bottom is already astonishing.

Take the bus here...some people don't and it was quite a long walk. The view from the top is beautiful...you can see the entire city and with it all lit up is just a bonus!

The tower is a definite go to place whilst visiting Seoul. The city is not the best looking, but you certainly get a scope of how big it is. There is also the usual souvenir shops and food and drink stalls.
